Lib Dems are the true pro-EU party, say Lambeth Liberal Democrat candidates

Eight Lambeth Lib Dem candidates signed on to a letter published in the Guardian, calling the Labour leadership out on its recent shift in Brexit position.

Our candidates joined one hundred other Lib Dem candidates from wards across London, as well as MPs Sir Vince Cable, Tom Brake, Ed Davey, and London AM Caroline Pidgeon.

Support our 'Sack Southern!' campaign

Local residents surveyed by Streatham Wells Lib Dems said that making local rail services more reliable is a top priority on transport.

Commuters have put up with Thameslink and Southern Rail's incompetence and thoroughly dreadful service for far too long. According to the National Audit Office, our rail routes have consistently higher levels of disruption than anywhere else on the national rail network.

With their contract set to expire in 2021, we are calling for Thameslink and Southern to be sacked now and for Transport for London (TfL) to take over local rail services.Train_Station_web_res.png

Local solutions to green issues - #RethinkingLambeth

As part of our Rethinking Lambeth campaign, local Lib Dems are committed to finding innovative solutions to the green issues facing the borough and beyond. Last week saw our inaugural Green issues meeting in Clapham, where we were honoured to be joined by the always inspiring Caroline Pidgeon AM.

Caroline spoke powerfully about the numerous challenges facing our environment, and how Lib Dems have consistently been at the forefront of devising and advocating policies to address them. Big wins like the plastic bag charge and the Thames Tideway Tunnel to keep raw sewage out of the river are due in large part to many years of hard work by Lib Dem politicians at national and European level. Meanwhile, our London Lib Dem representatives have been influential in the launch of the bus Hopper ticket and recent work on road pricing to tackle congestion and air pollution. At the same time, we are fighting proposals such as the Silvertown tunnel and Enderby Wharf cruise ship dock that promise only more traffic, noise and pollution for residents while failing to address the real problems facing London.

What then can we do, as Lambeth Lib Dem members and supporters, to advance green issues locally? 

The local elections provide a great opportunity to highlight the issues that we care about, particularly in areas where the Labour council is failing to make a difference.
